Miss Modern will return to theaters for one more unforgettable experience.
On July 5, Eleven Arts announced that the second Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern film, Gekijōban Haikara-san ga Tōru Kōhen – Tokyo Dai Roman (Big Romance in Tokyo) will get a theatrical run in the United States. The film will open in cinemas across the nation in Winter 2018.
Gekijōban Haikara-san ga Tōru Kōhen – Tokyo Dai Roman will open in Japanese theaters on October 11. The first movie, Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern opened in American theaters on June 8.
The Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern films are based on Waki Yamato’s classic manga series of the same name. Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Rurouni Kenshin) directed the first film and wrote the screenplay at Nippon Animation. Terumi Nishii (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, Penguindrum) is provided character designs for the project.
The first film, which opened in Japan on November 11, received the approval of manga author Waki Yamato.
Eleven Arts describes the first feature as:
Benio’s aptitude for martial arts, her strong will, and her dedication to her friends is what made her such an icon in the original manga, and inspired a successful run for the TV adaptation. Today, titles like Wonder Woman and Lady Bird and even other anime such as Mary and the Witch’s Flower and Napping Princess have carried the torch with themes of female empowerment. Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern updates a beloved character while joining the roster of new female cinema for today’s world. It is the perfect time for this title.
